Synopsis

Haruna Wakakusa and Yamada become friends after she saves him several times from her boyfriend's constant bullying. Through him she gets to know Kozue Yoshikawa, a fellow student who also models professionally. The three emotionally stunted teens' lives briefly yet intensely intertwine for one semester before splintering from the aftereffects of one disastrous night. For both Wakakusa and Yamada, their emotional awakening fosters an unlikely friendship between the two battered souls.

Okazaki: In Fragments

When Okazaki draws a face, whether she scales back on the lines to make it really comedyish or deformed, or when she draws it full to make it stylish/traumatic, she hits the emotions of the character's perfectly.

The thing about the Okazaki face is that it never screams over-romanticism. When Okazaki draws a face she doesn't layer the emotions with flair the same way just about every other anime drawer does (not saying that that's bad, just saying that she doesn't do it) but aims at showing human grief in all its trauma and sometimes ridiculousness.

Okazaki can also very easily switch from grief or read more

This story features LGBT scenes and has a splash of shounen-ai and shoujo-ai.

Wakakusa, Haruna is in highschool [we don’t really know which grade, only that she’s a senpai] and she’s doing well. Enter Yamada-kun [the quiet, pretty boy] and suddenly, it’s like there’s no ice-cream in the world.
Things go downhill fast, and when I mean fast I mean within a volume things go from ‘I’m doing good’ to ‘why the Hell am I here?! Wait a minute… Is there Hell anyways?!’
And I’m just sitting there thinking: please make sense as we progress. Please make sense as we progress.
Guess what?

It DIDN’T make sense as the story read more

rivers edge was a beautiful story about friendship love and getting through while it also portrays not too hardcore psychological problems. haruna our heroine meets very weird friends and is like a i don't care i can take it but strong character. while yamada is weird yet strong and is a homo. kozue our model loves to eat never gets fat she throws it all up after. she also likes haruna. theses three kids walk the path of friendship and life.
